Layaway angel hands out $100 to 6 women at Gastonia Walmart

Shoppers at a Gastonia Walmart were overwhelmed when a complete stranger walked into the store and handed them a $100 bill.

Six women were standing at the layaway counter when the good Samaritan handed them each $100 and walked out of the store without saying anything.

One of the women, Bonnie Tanner, who is a single mother of two children, told Channel 9 she was completely overwhelmed by the good deed.

Channel 9 reporter Ken Lemon said four of the six women were single mothers and one of them is a grandmother.

The grandmother was at the store to cancel her layaway items because she was taking care of her grandchild over the holidays and needed to money for diapers.

Tanner said the grandmother fell to her knees and cried when the man handed her the money.

She said the man did not say anything to the women and quickly left the store. One of the women went looking for him, but he was gone.

Tanner said her 11-year-old son is so inspired by what happened, he wants to break the $100 into smaller bills so he can give it away like this man did for his mother.

This gesture made this man believe in Christmas miracles

When Damien Walker lost his wallet last week, he thought he would be in for a terrible Christmas.

But after checking his mailbox on Tuesday, the Lauceston, Tasmania man was relieved to discover that a kindhearted stranger who went by “Santa Claus” had express-mailed his wallet to him.

“We hope you have a lovely Xmas. Love Santa and family,” read the message inside.

The gesture has made Walker believe in the magic of the Christmas season.

“It was completely anonymous and altruistic,” Walker told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“I’m glad to know that it’s right to still have faith in humanity,” he added.

Man fakes heart attack as friend steals toys from Walmart, deputies say

A man faked a heart attack so his friend could steal toys from a Florida Walmart, deputies said Wednesday.

According to a Polk County Sherrif's arrest report, Tarus Scott, 30, and Genard Dupree, 27, both of Lake Wales, filled a shopping cart at the Walmart with expensive toys, including a motorized power wheel Barbie car, a Leap Frog tablet and a Barbie Glam vacation house, with a total value of $369. 

The two men are seen on surveillance video walking through the store together. Video shows Dupree lying down on the ground, clutching his chest near the entrance of the store.

As concerned citizens check on Dupree, Scott is seen walking out of the store with the cart full of toys,
